Barkley was the No. 2 overall draft pick in 2018 by the New York Giants. His rookie contract was for four years and $31.1 million. Between his playing salary being paid in dollars and his endorsement money being paid in Bitcoin, Barkley will be working on a balanced investment portfolio.
The 24-year-old is recovering from a torn ACL that limited him to two games last season. As a rookie, he scored 15 touchdowns and racked up over 2,000 combined yards.
